NYU Libraries Grad Student Research Breakfast & 2014 GIS Day

We invite you to join us for two special events: a research breakfast for graduate students and our 3rd annual GIS Day.

Graduate Student Research Breakfast on November 20th
Come have breakfast, talk with our librarians about your project, and take care of those lingering research to-do list items. We’ll have specialists from across the disciplines who can help get you (re)oriented to our resources, get you started with citation management tools, and help you get the most out of our collections and services. This informal event lasts for two hours, and you can come and go as you like during that time.

Thursday, November 20, 10:00am-12:00noon
Bobst Library 10th-floor Graduate Research Exchange (northwest corner)
To RSVP, go to http://library.nyu.edu/grads

Celebrate GIS Day 2013 @ NYU at the 2nd annual GIS Day @ NYU Information Fair!


GIS Day is a worldwide celebration held on the Wednesday of the third week of November each year. The first formal GIS Day took place in 1999. ESRI president and co-founder Jack Dangermond credits Ralph Nader with being the person who inspired the creation of GIS Day.

Stop by the GIS Day @ NYU Information Fair and check out the information booths, see lots of maps, meet GIS faculty and professionals, and learn more about GIS tools and spatial data resources here at NYU.

What is GIS?

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage and present all types of geographically referenced data. – ESRI. GIS enables users to integrate various data into one system, overlay map layers, analyze and model spatial data and, finally, visualize the results in maps, reports and charts. GIS can be used to represent any data which has a geographic component and is currently utilized in many fields including urban and regional planning, disaster planning and emergency management, natural resource management, environmental planning, public health, public utility, engineering, weather forecasting, history, archeology, political science, food science, housing, and many more. http://nyu.libguides.com/GIS
